World/Inferno Friend

Addicted To Bad Ideas

Chunksaah 31

Released on August 21, 2007


THE WORLD/INFERNO FRIENDSHIP SOCIETY: your circus-related, punk-rockety orcestra gang from Brooklyn, New York! You know—overdressed boys/girls, double digits, capable of startling aggression, making punk a treat again for more than 10 years now? More a tribe than a band, really. Well, they've worked out this mathematical equation reconciling bravery, idealism and fun, and they'd like to show you an example. Punk rockers armed with orchestra elucidate the 20th century through the life of world-battered, morphine-crazed, tragi-comic character actor Peter Lorre, from whose laconic idealism WORLD/INFERNO seems to have taken most of their career cues. The manically beautiful song “Spiel” trips through vampires, Berlin, strings, horns, anti-fascist action, '40's Hollywood, piano, guitar, drums and heroism with a good criminal heart and a smile for which to die.

I think it is popular opinion that this is some of World/Inferno's top stuff. there is nothing wrong with it, but I'd recommend Red Eyed Soul over this.

this is has got to be one of the best albums i have ever bought. the first track is a few minutes of an orchestra style song then breaks into a fast song. the cd is filled with beautiful melody. lots of different intruments on here. a wide variety of people would enjoy this. have an open mind when listening to them. some of the best songs are "Peter Lorre Overture", "With A Good Criminal Heart", "Addicted To Bad Ideas", but all the songs are great. this is one album i can put on and listen to straight through and not get bored at all. i was very surprised how much i liked it. i saw them with Against Me! a couple monthes ago and they have a very good live show. theres so many people on stage, so much happens, but it doens't get out of hand. see them live if you can. pick up this record when you can, it wont dissapoint at all.
